Rex Santacruz MIS 304
A battery operated writing instrument that saves whatever the user is writing as an image file.
Nokia with Bluetooth
Required: Special paper from Anoto
Each page is laid out with a special dot pattern print out. These dots tell the pens where exactly on the paper they’re writing. Each of the pages are designed differently so the pen identifies which page you are writing on.
Two ways to upload: “Click” on a special box on the paper, which tells the bluetooth to upload the data through your cell phone.
Or you can connect the pen to a USB port.
The pen data will be saved according to where the images were taken on the paper, when it was written, the name of the writer (inputted by user), type of paper used and number of pages written.
The data is most commonly saved as an image file (.jpg, .gif, etc.) but it can be converted into other files with the use of character recognition software.
